Whether caused by a drunk, careless, or rage driver, automobile accidents can be incredibly distressing for all parties involved. A traffic collision, also called a motor vehicle collision (MVC) among other terms, occurs when a vehicle collides with another vehicle, pedestrian, animal, road debris, or other stationary obstruction, such as a tree, pole or building. Traffic collisions often result in injury, death, and property damage. The staggering number of motor vehicle collisions in New York City alone is testament to the need for reliable and trustworthy assistance after the accident. With over 20 years of collective legal experience Singh & Rani LLP is here and eager to help.

What are some causes, examples, and effects of automobile accidents?
Densely populated, New York City ushers in heavy traffic, unexpected road conditions, and high numbers of pedestrians, drivers, bikers, and tourists. Causes of automobile accidents include distracted driving, reckless driving, drunk driving, automobile defects, road defects, and unexpected animals or children crossing. Automobile accidents can include hit-and-runs, head-on collisions, multi-vehicle pileups, rear-end accidents (fender benders), rollover accidents, side-impact collisions (T-bone crashes), and taxi accidents. Injuries can be minor or major, mental and emotional as well as physical, some resulting in brain and spinal cord damage, if not death.
How necessary is an automobile accident lawyer?
Although it may be tempting to navigate an automobile accident solely with the help of your car insurance company, it can be of tremendous benefit to hire an automobile accident lawyer for the added protection, clarity, and just compensation that you deserve. Attorneys will deal with the insurance company(or the other party’s insurance company), expedite the process, and employ their professional experience backed by years of legal education that an insurance agent would not have. Insurance companies tend to minimize compensation whereas we will strive to maximize it.
